Episode 33: “Interrogation”

Cinephile Aaron Weaver is baaaaaaaaack with the boys on this episode of On This Very Screen as we dive head-first into one of the WWE Studios’ more recent offerings — Interrogation, starring WWE’s Edge and Lana.

In this bungled mess of an 24-style action thriller (that should have been a lot better than it was), Edge plays FBI special agent, Lucas Nolan — an expert interrogator assigned to sussing out a layered terror plot from self-professed terrorist, Patrick Sambongui. Filled with enough secrets and betrayals to make even fans of Basic blush, this movie gets the boys talking about what separates a “mind palace” from a “memory house,” their thoughts on the only neo-Nazi bar in Minnesota, and their take on one of the ballsiest twists  ever seen for a movie on this podcast.

Did You Know? According to IMDB, this movie took eleven days to shoot. Could have fooled us.

Episode 22: “The Marine 4: Moving Target”

On this week’s episode of On This Very Screen, the boys are joined in the studio by a very special guest, none other than “Broseph” Joe Brody, himself — the face of wrestling cult phenomenon, Hoodslam AJ Kirsch!  In the first part of the show, AJ and the guys talk about Hoodslam’s beginnings and its recent great run of press (this mini-doc from AJ+ is particularly remarkable), the inspirations behind the “Broseph” Joe Brody character, as well as his current run on Dwayne Johnson’s weekly promo-battle competition, Rock The Promo!  A can’t-miss interview from one of our favorite guests, yet!

But of course, what episode wouldn’t be complete without a review from WWE Studios? This episode, the four of them take on The Marine 4: Moving Target, a feature-length escort mission (yay!) starring Mike “The Miz” Mizanin (reprising his role as Jake Carter from The Marine 3: Homefront), Melissa Roxburgh as the VIP he’s been assigned to protect, and Total Divas’ Summer Rae as… well, a lazily-named sniper who may or may not have been ripped off from Metal Gear Solid V. Are you a fan of never-ending gunfights, whiny female “characters,” and multiple references to the Resident Evil series? This is the show for you!

Did You Know? We mention it at the end of this episode, but it cannot be ignored that the writer of this movie, Alan B. Mcelroy, has more than a few movies under his belt: the original “Marine,” “The Condemned 2,” “Tekken,” and one of the worst-reviewed movies in cinematic history — “Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever.” The boys’ reactions to this news, you have to hear.

Episode 18: “The Condemned 2”

Ahoy, ScreenTeam! Before Marc gets his sailor suit back on for his second Backstreet Boys cruise next week, the OTVS crew (along with special guest, stand-up comic Dash Kwiatkowski, in his second review) returns with a hilarious breakdown of WWE’s latest Randy Orton offering, The Condemned 2! A sequel to the Stone Cole Steve Austin-led murderthon-in-the-jungle, The Condemned 2 sees Will Tanner (Orton) as a reformed bounty hunter bail enforcer pursued by his former team as the country’s bloodthirsty elite gamble on his survival. In this episode, the gang pulls the curtain back on the rough and tumble world of “bail enforcement,” how to properly react when all your friends are trying to kill you, and a wildly funny look into the daily lives of employees at a struggling murder-table factory (it’ll make sense, trust me).

Did You Know? Long-time Abrigo favorite, Eric Roberts, is no stranger to movies starring professional wrestlers. He was in “The Expendables” with Stone Cold Steve Austin, “The Dark Knight,” with Tiny “Zeus” Lister, and “Dead Or Alive” with Kevin Nash doing his best impression of Hulk “Who?” Hogan.

Episode 06: “The Condemned”

Swaggering into the spotlight of On This Very Screen’s sixth episode is the Texas Rattlesnake, himself, Stone Cold Steve Austin, with rated-R action-thriller, The Condemned! Are you a fan of heavy-handed social commentary? Plodding fight scenes? Rob Hoffman from f*cking Suits?! Then you’ve hit the jackpot as the gang is joined by stand-up comedian, Dash Kwiatkowski, to discuss squandered death scenes,  the movie’s unhealthy fascination with sexual assault, and what happens when characters are literally more developed on your Wiki page than in the actual film.  Buckle up, ’cause this one’s an absolute riot!

Did You Know? Bah Gawd, Stone Cold wasn’t originally cast as main protagonist, Jack Conrad, but rather British SAS agent-turned-psychopath, Ewan McStarley. Yeah. The Vinnie Jones character. Christ, almighty, what we would do to hear the “Austin 3:16” quote in an English accent…
